>Take advantage of a limited time offer from Dell Computer to recycle up
>to three used computers (actually, 3 shipped units up to 50 lbs. per
>unit) for 99 cents each!! Check it out at
>http://www.dell.com/us/en/dhs/topics/segtopic_dell_recycling.htm and
>scroll down a bit for the first item in the left hand column. Lots of
>terms and conditions to check out, and a few hoops to jump through, but
>why not take advantage of one of the best deals in town. If more people
>respond to this than to their $15+ recycling, it will demonstrate the
>demand for inexpensive end-of-life equipment disposition. Share this
>information to your lists.

>Dell and the Computer TakeBack Campaign are running neck and neck in the
>week leading up to Dell's July 18th annual meeting. Only days after a
>report detailing Dell's use of prison labor for e-waste recycling, the
>company ended its relationship with UNICOR. After the Campaign launched
>its "Hard Drive Across the West" in Seattle on July 10, promoting
>producer responsibility in several western cities en route to Austin,
>Dell's PR machine ginned up extensive media work and stakeholder
>outreach in all of those cities to blunt the force of our "stunt." It
>appears Dell has only announced this 99 cent deal publicly to the media
>in Denver, CO, the site of our next campaign action.

>If you take advantage of Dell's 99 cent deal, drop us a line to
>info@computertakeback.com. We'd like to know how many folks take
>advantage of e-waste recycling when "the price is right."
